A lot of games typically go through beta testing which sometimes can be open to the public. What this does is that it allows players to provide feedback to developers on any bugs spotted within the game, and it also lets developers observe players and their behaviors and allows them to make changes, such as balancing classes, weapons, and so on.

Now for those who enjoy participating in these kind of tests, you’ll be pleased to learn that 343 Industries has stated that they will let gamers playtest Halo Infinite during the game’s development. According to Chris Lee, Studio Head of FPS at 343 Industries, this is because they really want to get player feedback throughout the development process.

According to Lee, “We will have some new and unexpected directions to take folks in and I believe the way we achieve that is to build alongside our community, iterating and improving as we go. In the future, you will be able to join early flighting programs that will let members of the community play the game with us, and give direct feedback, much like the current Insider flighting program for Halo: The Master Chief Collection.”

No word on when these playtests are expected to kick off, but Lee states that they will be starting off small. Halo Infinite for those unfamiliar was announced at E3 2018. This will be the latest installment in the Halo franchise but unfortunately no release date was mentioned during its announcement.
